A motorcycle rider from Lockport was injured and his passenger was killed in a motorcycle accident occurring in Johnson City, NY. The accident happened when the driver of the motorcycle swerved to avoid a trash can that had fallen off the back of a pick up truck. In making his evasive maneuver, he ended up in the other lanes of traffic where they were hit by a tractor trailer. Police are looking for the pick up truck still.One thing that makes motorcycle riders a bit different from most is that they often travel by road great distances from home. That brings them into other states and other areas of the state where they may not know an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. One service that we offer to victims of motorcycle accidents from Illinois who are injured elsewhere is a referral to well-qualified motorcycle accident lawyers near the area where the accident happened. Local lawyers are more likely to know quality investigators, accident reconstructionists, and possibly some of the law enforcement personnel who may have investigated the accident. Finding a good personal injury lawyer may be a hard task under the best of circumstances, made much worse by doing so at a distance while recovering from serious injuries from a motorcycle accident.When we work with lawyers from another state, there is no additional fee for the services we provide. Please contact us if we can be of service in locating a lawyer for you in another state.
